Yes, this is about my interests not covered by the categories listed to the left. I plan to provide images with commentary. I have images from my travel. I am interested many kinds of art, particularly Japanese wood block prints, especially Kunisada, also known as Toyokuni II or III.

In American art I am interested in and own pieces by Paul K. Smith, Charles Harsenyi, and A. W. Kucera. I also have an interest in the photographs of Keith Carter and Eric Weller.

My wife collects Mason's Vista Ironstone in Brown. You can find information about it at her website and on this page.


Here is a presentation I made about the State of the Arts in Texas at The Conference of College Teachers of English in Waco in March 2005.
